Dubai’s beautiful beaches.

I was strolling along the beachfront this morning and the water looked absolutely beautiful, the most amazing colours. I had the little digital camera with me so I’ll share a few of the photographs with you – the colours came out pretty well.



Dubai only has about 40 kilometres of natural coastline. A lot of that is taken up by the city, Port Rashid, Jebel Ali Port, Dubai Dry Docks plus some which is private for the beach hotels and some for Sheikhs’ beach villas.

But we still have maybe 15 kilometres or so of open public beach. The main stretch starts beside Burj Al Arab, our famous seven-star hotel, and runs back towards Dubai city, which is about 30 kilometres away.


A little further, maybe three kilometres from the ultra-modern Burj Al Arab you come across this…a perfect example of Dubai’s mix of traditional and new.
